It was a real pleasure experiencing such a variety of food servings in Restaurant Opera: You can find beef fish and chicken nicely presented dishes in a way you can not stop eating till the last piece. A perfect restaurant in zurich with friendly staff and beautiful decor..

I have been to many poor restaurants, poor food, poor decor, poor service. You name it, I have had it. But no words can describe the shock I had when the restaurant manager answered his mobile whilst preparing to serve and kept talking while serving the main course at our table. There was no sign of any 'Excuse me, I've... More

We booked this restaurant mainly because we were staying in Hotel Ambassador a le Opera, one of the SLHs of which I have always been a fan. The hotel met our expectations but the restaurant was entirely something else. When we saw the 20% discount voucher in our rooms we should have taken the hint and cancelled the booking. Yet... More

Dear “Peter-the-Egg”. I am sorry to hear that we could not meet your expectations. A restaurant is like a stage: The audience expects the actors to do always their best; above all there should not be a suggestion of fatigue if the performance was already showed before. An outstanding act will always be expected and it is the goal of... More

We spent a very nice evening in that restaurant. Food is quite good. They particularly have fish specialties, but you can also find meat dishes that looked nice. Service is efficient and discreet. Of course, prices are rather high, but it's worth it, and Zurich isn't a cheap place anyway.

I booked the restaurant to celebrate my girl-friend birthday. The service are very friendly and attentive. The table were decorated with birthday theme. I did not expect this knowing that the restaurant is normally located at the "high end" of Zurich city. The decoration is beautiful. It gave the feeling that you are somewhere in French or Italian Restaurant. The... More

My friend and I ate at the Restaurant Opera twice. Perhaps that is all any one needs to know that we found the food exceptional, the service friendly, accommodating (I have an allergy to peanuts), efficient, and very knowledgeable about the wine and food.

Saw a wonderful ballet and had a wonderful meal not too far away. Very interesting decor. Reservation needed. Staff attentive and did not rush us. Appealing presentation of food. Enjoyed our fish, very tasty and not dry. Their salad was fresh with a large assortment of cheeses, tomatoes, peppers, etc. Food is not heavy. Close to tram for convenience

As guests staying at the Opera Hotel, we availed ourselves of a dining experience here. The restaurant does not disappoint - prompt friendly service, exceptional food presented with verve and elegance, classical ambience. All the elements worked in harmony to make a final vacation evening one not to be soon forgotten.

I only ate here because I'm staying at the hotel and it was a rainy night. However, dinner was a memorable experience, and not particularly expensive by Zurich's standards. Highly recommend it.
